We stayed for one night and really enjoyed our stop after a long day of travelling. The hosts provided plenty of tips for things to do in and around Grand Marais. The rooms are extremely nice and well cared for when we arrived. There was a family style breakfast the following morning where all of the guests sat and ate... More

My wife and I had a great time at the Agate Cross B&B. Our room was spacious, immaculately clean, well furnished, and tastefully decorated. The view of Lake Superior from the large deck was enchanting. The B&B is within easy walking distance of the small downtown and Lake Superior. We ate in one of three restaurants and enjoyed a poached... More

Jamey and Lois are amazing hosts. We had a beautiful and authentic stay in their home. Lois makes an amazing breakfast each morning which really starts your day off nicely. They have lots of tips on places to go and see in Grand Marais and the surrounding areas. If you are going to the Upper Peninsula, this is the place... More

The Agate Cross is an absolutely outstanding B&B for various reasons. If you are a lover of nature and delicious, healthy food, you will be very happy there. My husband and I just came back from our second stay and are as enthusiastic as we were about our first two nights in October 2015. Then, there are of course the... More

My husband and I stayed for one night while snowmobiling through the Upper Peninsula. Conveniently, you can connect with the trail just a few blocks away from the B&B. The room itself was very clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed being able to use the hot tub after a long day of riding. Relaxing in the hot water under the... More

Hosts are a lovely couple residing on shores of Lake Superior on one of most picturesque drives in UP. B and B breakfast area overlooks the water. Quiet locale in Grand Marais with outstanding full breakfasts- breads, eggs, potatoes and meat option. We stayed in honeymoon suite which was part of a new addition.

No one would ever describe Grand Marais as exciting or as a robust town - there aren't a lot of places to stay or places to eat BUT there is a LOT to explore and see in easy driving distance. Grand Marais is a great anchor location for the general area - and the Agate Cross B&B is THE place... More
